    Another awful horse naming thread...

    I have a POA pony that is going to his first horse show next Sunday. His registered name his (sigh) Skeeter's Sonny Boy and I just. can't. He's not even Sonny Dee Bar bred.

    I finally retired my gelding late this spring. We thought we had him figured out on corrective shoeing and we had good rides and a good show. Over the winter and early spring we had good rides but he...

    Once a week I go out to dinner with my dad and afterwards go to the barn. It's generally 7-8pm by the time I get there and there is usually no one there or everyone is packing up and leaving. I...

    This exactly. I got treated very rudely when I was shopping for a project pony because the breeder felt I didn't have enough money to buy one of his horses and I was never going to find what I wanted...

    I was able to roughly sketch out that the actual price to buy in store is ~$20/pound. So maybe $10/pound to ship makes sense.

    But at the same time, curious when things tend to cost what people...

    Can we return to the idea that it's cost effective to fly these horses from Canada to Japan?

    I feel like people flying horses from Europe for import as sporthorses are getting taken for more than...

    OMG I'm having kidney stone flashbacks. I've had two and I can tell you for sure that one doctor had them himself (IV Fentanyl, went from vomiting to napping, heaven) and one who hadn't (IM tylenol?,...

    I adore mine and I'm really happy this thread inspired me to buy them!

    I have a pony that lives in one 24/7 except for maybe 20 minutes "hall pass" in a grassy paddock when I am at the barn. I did buy him one of the easy breathe muzzles, but his "backup" is a normal...

    Hello thread.

    So the stars have aligned. Pony has responded 100% to steroids in both the lungs and eyes department. I found a barn a few miles away from work. I got a better job that I...

    Thank you! We're going to check out a flea market in East Aurora in the morning and I'll pour over a map and your ideas tonight. Thankfully, we'll be cutting east well before the Friendship area -...

    Hey COTHers.... I know there are a lot of east coasters out there. We are driving from Buffalo to Philadelphia (airport) tomorrow. We have all day. Looks like there are a lot of possible routes so...

    I will PM you when I get home axl. :)

    And yes, as a PSA - POAs are neither appies nor ponies as a rule, despite my joking. I rode with a POA breeder in college. Desperate for a horse fix, I...

    Yes, to clarify, I am enjoying my time with him. My only real deadline at this point to find him a situation is before they put roundbales out in November (unfortunately an unavoidable part of...

    Yup! On the advice of the vet he's wearing a fly mask 24/7 and it appears to be helping and he's responding nicely to the ointment. Plus he looks adorable in the mask I intended to torture my TB...
  19. Really great pony with a bucket of problems - Iowa

    I really hate to do this, but I have to start exploring my options so that a super great pony can have a great life.

    After battling issues with my thoroughbred gelding, I decided to buy a cheap...

    And you think you would honestly be able to provide him a better quality of life than he has now?

    Sorry I was going to stay out of this but the ignorance of the racing industry within the horse...
